Europe   The company has reached a point where it needs to make necessary adjustments

Norwegian Air will axe a number of routes in Europe and to the U.S and the Middle East.

"The company has reached a point where it needs to make necessary adjustments to its route portfolio in order to improve the sustainability and financial performance in this very competitive environment," Helga Bollmann Leknes, Norwegian Air's Chief Commercial Officer, said in a statement to Reuters.

The airliner will close its bases in Palma de Mallorca, Gran Canaria, and Tenerife in Spain, as well as in Stewart and Providence in the United States. It would also shut the 737 base at Rome's Fiumicino airport but keep its Dreamliner base there.

The company did not give a specific number of jobs that would be cut but said it would seek to minimise redundancies.
